[unknown]The Hellenic Library, issue #3, 1915, San Francisco - George D. Papageorge Palladius
I discovered this journal of 1915 in my father's effects (Conrad H. Pavellas) after he died. It is published by his maternal aunt's husband, George D. Papageorge-Palladius (the Palladius was invented and added by Papageorge to give him and his progeny more panache). It purports to be issue number 3, but I have copies of no other issues. It may have value as an historical document regarding pre-War (WW #1) Greece and California, and may also have some literary value...
